7. Congressional hearings are what's...
...needed and it does not appear that the current bunch of spineless nothings trying to pass for representatives of the people have any intention of holding them. The problem is they don't answer to the people, they answer to the AIPAC/PNAC Neocon power elites.

I'm afraid we have a very tough road ahead. Most citizens sense something is very wrong, maybe even realize our country is dying, but they don't know what to do about it. Even here at DU many cling to the illusion of recapturing our country and restoring a functional democracy working within the system -- it's not going to happen. Between rigged elections, black ops false flag operations, and having been stripped of virtually ALL our civil liberties, there is now simply no chance to prevail working within the system.

If "pitchforks" means massive, well organized, nonviolent noncooperation, I'm all for it, but it seems things are going to have to become much much worse (painful to think about) before the required numbers can be organized and mobilized. And unfortunately, time is not on our side -- these illegitimate fascist criminals become more well entrenched, emboldened, and dangerous with each passing day.

The international community came together, the U.S. prominent among them, to rescue the world from the Nazis some 60 plus years ago -- now it seems the world once again needs rescuing, this time FROM the U.S.

I feel for Sibel Edmonds being in such a difficult and frustrating position. I wish I had some answers for her. I feel badly that we, collectively (Congress, MSM, the citizenry), have turned our backs on such a brave and patriotic woman. Call me melodramatic, but I would venture to say: As goes the Sibel Edmonds case so goes our nation, if we let it die, our country, as we once knew it, dies with it.
